"just under 5 tons" - actual weights? or GVWR? Maryland's rules are for GVWR, not for actual weights. It was one of the things that I asked - because in my truck and with the family, we come in around 9,000 lbs.

They do really check. When we came through, he put a traffic cone behind the camper, wheel chocks in front of and behind the wheels, had my wife put it in park, and then scooted around underneath on a creeper. Once he was satisfied, he undid everything and gave us a clean bill of health.

I'd have to stop with just me in the truck as I am sitting... GVWR is 11k.

Yup, 12,300 for me.

Mind you, I don't stop- towing or not.

Do I have to pull into Weigh Scales

Manitoba states:

With my truck and trailer both over 10k.
I must have class 3 license.
My truck has to be inspected yearly.
I must enter weigh scales.
I can be fined, for being over gvwr of truck or trailer.
Amount of fine, depends on how much over. Goes by the KG.


This is what I have been told by both the Rcmp and the Manitoba highways dot.

I will note: I have not had a chance to drive by a scale yet. Just none on my normal campground route.

I have no idea what they will do, if I actually pulled in.
